"If Chinese takeout seems too cliche, venture a little farther east. Pacific East, a recent addition to the Cleveland eats scene, offers delicate and delectable Japanese cuisine that makes any night in seem superb. All menu items are available for takeout and range from marinated baby octopus to noodle bowls. But the restaurant's sushi bar is its biggest attraction; combo meals allow for a diverse selection and include such fish as tuna, salmon, yellowtail and mackerel. A nigiri sushi and sashimi combo dinner for two -14 pieces of sushi, 22 pieces of sashimi, two rolls, miso soup and salad - makes a delicious dinner that's fit to split."
